From Himalayan Bhutan to Thailand's Best Beach

16 days from £7,795 per person

Combining the best of two very different worlds, this stunning itinerary transports you from the remote Bhutanese Himalayas to the cerulean warm waters of the Gulf of Siam. Spend six days in Bhutan in the lap of luxury exploring Punakha Dzong, Thimpu's markets and museums, and the tranquil Paro valley - the site of the remarkable cliff hugging Tiger's Nest monastery - before flying down to the heavenly island of Koh Samui.

You can choose to relax in your villa or on the palm fringed beach, enjoying dramatic views over the Gulf of Siam, or, alternatively, go diving or snorkelling in the many marine parks. These destinations are at their best between October and April with crystal clear views in Bhutan and a guaranteed burst of sunshine in Thailand.

This is purely a suggested itinerary so can be booked as it is, or used as a starting point for creating your own luxury tailor-made tour of Bhutan and Thailand. If you'd like to see similar trips, take a look at our Epic Journey and Honeymoon collections; as well as our favourite Multi-Country, Beach, Spa & WellnessActive and Trekking holidays.

Travelling is like flirting with life. It's like saying, 'I would stay and love you, but I have to go; this is my station.

Ampersand’s details preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet/direct booking age. Shalmali was a delight to work with – before and during our trip.
- Mr David Wallace, North India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
